Instead of chasing listing agents that work for the seller, you should think about getting a buyer's agent that will be paid by the seller, but work for you. When you are dealing with a listing (seller's) agent they are not working for you and you can't discuss strategy or get help with making offers tjat are in your best interest. If you get a buyer's agent they can help you locate good deals, help you formulate a strategy, show you comparables so that if you make an offer it's should get consideration and they can guide you through the buying process.
